Training Camp Internships

Another internship that NFL teams offer is a Training Camp internship. During the NFL pre-season in preparation for the regular season, teams practice from typically late July to the end of August. To assist with practice, the pre-season games and preparation for the season, it is typical to bring in interns to help out. Commonly, some type of experience in equipment is preferred even in an entry level position like this. Many training camp interns are student equipment managers at their university or college they are attending and they work for NFL teams until they are needed back with their college teams or their classes have begun. This is a great way for student equipment managers to get their first experience working in the NFL.
